Fancy working for a company that work with data at double-digit petabyte scale and billions of records per day?

Are you interested in designing and developing brand new data platforms (Hadoop/Spark/AWS) to help develop real world products that will be used by millions of consumers.

This is probably the coolest role in the industry at the moment and a genuinely unmissable opportunity.

The really cool part of this role is that it is massively product driven - you're not there just to process distributed data but actually help to develop a real-world, cutting edge product in the most advanced team in the world.


Let's talk if:

  • You have a strong background developing a production level Big Data platform, preferably at petabyte scale (including Hadoop/Spark/Spark Streaming/AWS)
  • You have solid programming experience with either Java or Python
  • You've worked with a number of different data technologies, including RDBMS & NoSQL
  • You love technology innovation and have a passion for Big Data & its commercial benefits
